|Sadayatana 096: Toads And Black Dogs - John Tocher|
The last two hours is just me playing live. Some of the new Rain release from webbed hand is heard too. Somnaphon: Rain 1. Love those rain releases. Also, some of an album I am working on gets played. Making music is fun. I hope you like it as much as I do. A poetess who had died young of cancer had said in one of her poems that for her, on sleepless nights, 'the night offers toads and black dogs and corpses of the drowned.' - Yasunari Kawabata, House of the Sleeping Beauties (1961) startartist...

|Sadayatana 179: The Wandering Soul - John Tocher|
At night the choppers buzz the bamboo roof of the jungle, dumping from three thousand feet to little more than a hundred, circling, climbing, circling again, no LZ to land in, no casualties to pick up. Above the roar of the rotorwash come the shrieks of the damned: wails, moans, plaintive cries of Vietnamese. It’s real William Castle stuff, weird sounds and screaming meemies, but even knowing it’s coming from a tape recorder, even hearing the static hiss of the loudspeakers mounted on the Hu...

A few more tracks from the new release at otium.ru Seetyca & Etheocles Stevens: "Sulphur VI".

|Sadayatana 047: Secret Souls - John Tocher|
This was a fun show. One of my best ones I think. Straight dark ambient with some noise and soundscapes. Couple tracks from Mystified's as yet unreleased "Drifting". Actually it was released in 2007 for sale on recycled cassettes, but coming out again soon on Buddhist on Fire as CC music. Backyard Ghost again. Played these tracks on "Calm, Happy Whispers", and listening to it later, it felt like I needed a seatbelt...

|Sadayatana 040: Underwater Sculptures - John Tocher|
New track from a collaboration between Dan Miñoza and M. Peck: "Primer" A tease from an upcoming release. Awesome. Tracks from Jack Hertz, Shane Morris & Anton Mobin, and Muied Lumens. All from the new collaboration of electro-music.com regulars: "No Labels No Musics II". Great release, more of this later. Big mix of tracks by The Imogen Projekt, I just threw them all together in a way that made it just one big long spacy track...

|Sadayatana 034: The Tall Grass - John Tocher|
New releases: Mystified's "Bone Drones III" and Kirill Platonkin's "Psychic Transport". Mystified's album, the third in his trilogy "derived entirely from trombone sounds" marks the 200th release at Webbed Hand Records. Many more to come I hope --Webbed Hand Records gets a lot of play here. Several tracks by "The Implicit Order". I am particularly taken with the recent release at Vuzh Music: The Implicit Order "They Live in the Sky"...

|Sadayatana 048: Sleeping Mind - John Tocher|
Been focusing on preproduction lately. Changing the way the music is pulled together. Kind of a transitional show. A mix of old and new. Finally got the permission thing squared away with The Implicit Order. I can play anything he puts out now. Thank you Implicit Order. A track from the new Mystified release from Dark Winter. Love that cover. Played a bunch of dark tracks from the DNA Production netlabel...

|Sadayatana 084: Listen and Dream - John Tocher|
There are not many persons who know what wonders are opened to them in the stories and visions of their youth; for when as children we listen and dream, we think but half-formed thoughts, and when as men we try to remember, we are dulled and prosaic with the poison of life. But some of us awake in the night with strange phantasms of enchanted hills and gardens, of fountains that sing in the sun, of golden cliffs overhanging murmuring seas, of plains that stretch down to sleeping cities of bronze...
